"it gets better... No spoilers"
When a dead body swan dives from a balcony into the pool at a wedding, gossip about disgraced paralegal and former rodeo queen Emily - whose husband left her for a woman who's really a man - comes to a halt.

Women get older, dammit, and sometimes it sucks, especially for women who pride themselves on athleticism and an adventurous spirit. Hot flashes. Weight gain. Sleepless nights. Yes, it can be hard, but middle age doesn't have to be a flashing red stop light. It's perfectly acceptable for women of a certain age, a certain level of hormonal imbalance, and a certain amount of cellulite to don spandex and even enter the rarefied sport of endurance triathlon.
Let's face it. People keep getting married. Yet over 40% of first marriages end in divorce and up to 67% of second do, too, with statistics becoming predictably more dismal. It seems like, for many of us, the longing to be half of a couple so in love they make other people want to puke is too strong to ignore. The problem is, we've all grown up to expect that fairytale endings happen by accident, that if we wish upon a star, or let down our golden hair, then, blammo, we'll get our happily ever after.
Set in the Caribbean and Texas, Pamela weaves tales fictional and factual of the magnificent and interrelated creatures - natural and supernatural - that passed through the authors' life, bringing her delight, fright, and every emotion in between.
